Product Details

Philips AVENT 3-in-1 Classic Electric Steam Sterilizer effectively eliminates 99.9 percent of bacteria from your baby's feeding items in just minutes. It holds up to six Classic bottles, yet it takes only minimal space in your kitchen. Advanced features, such as a six-minute cycle with automatic shutoff, make it easy to sterilize breast pumps, bottles, cups, and more.

Intense Steam Provides Effective Sterilization
Philips AVENT Classic Electric Steam Sterilizer kills 99.9 percent of germs through intense steam sterilization. Used by hospitals, steam sterilization is an effective way to protect your baby from harmful bacteria. Simply plug the unit into any standard electrical outlet to safely and effectively eliminate most household germs in as little as six minutes.

Adjustable Size Saves Space
Due to its adjustable size, the Philips AVENT Classic 3-in-1 Electric Steam Sterilizer fits the items you want to sterilize and takes up minimal kitchen space. Three-in-one functionality gives you the option of a small configuration for sterilizing pacifiers, a medium configuration for breast pumps, toddler plates, and utensils, and a large configuration for six Classic 11-ounce bottles. It can even hold wide or narrow-necked bottles.

Six-Minute Cycle and Auto Shutoff
Operating at a higher temperature than a dishwasher, the Philips AVENT Classic 3-in-1 Electric Steam Sterilizer uses electricity to generate intense steam. Just add water to the base, load the rack, and turn on the power. The unit will operate a six-minute cycle and automatically shut off when complete. The contents will remain sterile for up to 24 hours if the lid remains unopened.

The Philips AVENT Classic 3-in-1 Electric Steam Sterilizer is backed by a full two-year warranty.

  • Title: Thumbs up!

    Some very good aspects in the 3-in-1 electric Steam sterilizer, especially the automatic shut-off and the ease of cleaning. It's easy to use - add water, load the rack, and turn it on. The only issue I have with this product is it doesn't have a drying mechanism.

  • Title: Sterilize Baby Bottles & Baby Toys Too!

    This Philps 3 in 1 electric steam sterilizer is absolutely perfect for sterilizing baby bottles. It works so much better than the microwave sterilizers You can fit 6 bottles The price is excellent for this item. Works pretty quickly and by far one of the best that I have used. Also works great for smaller toys

  • Title: The perfect sterilizer.

    This is the perfect sterilizer for anyone with babies. It takes up very little space on the counter and only takes about 6 minutes to do a load. It runs hotter than a dishwasher would so it gets rid of more germs than most. It also fits different size items so you can put different bottles, rings and nipples and also a pacifier or too. If you are looking for a sterilizer this is your baby :)

  • Title: Sterilizer for Many Objects

    This is an excellent sterilizer. It is easy to use, adjustable, and easy to clean. Designed for sterilizing baby bottles, it can be used for other purposes. The Avent has four parts: a heating unit (W6.5in X L11.5in X H2.5in) The large basket has a six 11oz Avent baby bottle capacity. I use it for sterilizing canning jars and individual bottles for fruit juice. Bell quart canning jars do not fit in the unit standing up so I have to use smaller containers. I use individual bottles for juice (10oz bottles) and can fit 6 in the large basket standing up. The small basket The lid fits snugly with a good seal. It has a large blue handle that does not get hot and a steam vent. The contents of the sterilizer become very hot This is a great product for parents who want to sterilize baby bottles and other baby feeding utensils. It is also very good for canners using glass storage units. Other applications come to mind: small bottles could be sterilized for individual wine servings for picnics

  • Title: Doesn't save time, doesn't save space.

    In my opinion, the Philips Avent Steam Sterilizer is a waste of money. For that matter, I now see that pretty much ANY electric sterilizer is a waste of money. I'll tell you why: for almost a year now i have been daily scrubbing and then boiling all my baby's bottles and my pump parts. I have an efficient system down of starting a pot of water to boil and then scrubbing the bottles. By the time I'm done scrubbing the water is ready. I use tongs to dip each item in the water and then i put them on a bottle drying rack. Using the Avent Sterilizer actually takes MORE time than my usual process. You still have to scrub bottles when using the sterilizer This machine doesn't save time. This machine doesn't save space. It gets two stars because I think it would be useful to have around for sterilizing toys once in a while but it's just not practical or time saving or space saving to use every day."

  • Title: Love it!

    I really like this sterilizer. It is so easy to use and has plenty of space. It fits up to 6 bottles and sterilizes very quickly. I also use it for pacifiers and small toys, works great. The only thing I would improve is an easier way to store it - takes quite a bit of space. It is not complicated to put together and for the price, I strongly recommend it. Hope it lasts me a good while since I plan to have more children! (AVENT is one of my favorite brands, good quality products)

  • Title: Would have been great

    This is a great sterilizer. Its easy to clean and the 4-in-1 feature is good. Unfortunately I purchased Dr. Brown's bottles Dr. Brown's BPA Free Polypropylene Natural Flow Bottle Newborn Feeding Set and the 8oz bottles are too long for the sterilizer. Fortunately for now we are just using the smaller bottles but in a couple months this sterilizer will be obsolete and I guess I will have to get Dr. Brown's sterilizer. Oh well........."

  • Title: Glad We Got This One

    We found the Philips AVENT Sterilizer to be a great convenience to have around in every way. We particularly like the design and the advantage of the minimum extra space needed for it on the counter top helps to prevent spills and accidents. It works quickly, too, a matter of minutes. The 4-in-1 design makes it about the best choice around, since the dishwasher basket definitely helps. Glad we got this one and it is highly recommended.

  • Title: not necessary

    I initially bought this thinking that it would make life easier but really, it's not necessary. Definitely not worth the money when I can steam my bottles in a vegetable steamer just as easily. I ended up returning it.

  • Title: Neat Item with Multiple Uses

    This handy item is fairly neat and fairly compact. I see the point of the viewer who felt that this sterilizer could not do anything she could not do with a pot of water on the stove. However, I like that it keeps the stove free for other uses, and that it does not require the same degree of supervision while performing its work. The adjustable sizes make it handy for various uses: sterilizing not only baby bottles but baby toys and other small items. It would be more helpful if it dried the items as well, so that they did not have to be removed (to a place that is possibly NOT sterile, such as the dish drying rack) in order to be dried and ready for use. A handy, if not strictly necessary, item.

  • Title: Compact and Fast

    I just got these to try with a friend of mine and her little bundle of screaming joy. It only takes 6 minutes to sterilize a bottle! That really beats putting them in the dishwasher ( and according to the companies literature it gets the bottles far cleaner)or what I remember having to do for my younger siblings bottles back in the late 80's early 90's boiling the bottles and paraphernalia in a pot of water on the stove. I love that you can use this with any type of bottle so you aren't stuck using one kind of bottle. And I like that it sort of shrinks down for storage

  • Title: Compact Sterilizer That Works Well

    This is a compact sterilizer that is easy to use and easy to clean. It holds a lot for its size. It comes with a dishwasher basket that allows you to clean items first in your dishwasher before sterilizing them. You can also wash them with soap and water if you wish. It also has an automatic shutoff control. Overall this is a good product with nice features. This is simple to use. All you do is clean the items you want to sterilize first The process takes about 10 minutes from when you put items in the sterilizer. If you take them out right way they are hot and there is some steam. As with a dishwasher The sterilizer (as opposed to the dishwasher basket) is not dishwasher safe so it needs to be cleaned with mild soap and water. Since the items you put in it need to be cleaned first there is not much cleaning to be done. I have hard water in my area so descaling the reservoir every month to prevent scaling is recommended. The alternative would be using distilled water. This holds up to six bottles. I have also used it for spoons and small plates. This comes with a 2 year warranty. I had a question regarding the descaling process and customer service was knowledgeable and friendly. This is a compact

  • Title: Don't waste your money

    If you're a first time mom you're probably going to want a bottle sterilizer. They're suppose to be fast and convenient as opposed to the tedious process of boiling your baby's bottles and pacifiers in water for five minutes. The reality is, a sterilizer really isn't necessary. It can be nice to have one, but you don't NEED it. If you do decide that you want a sterilizer The sterilizer does complete the cycle in approximately seven minutes as promised. That certainly is quicker than waiting for a big pot of water to boil on the stove Personally If you are serious about getting a sterilizer Overall

  • Title: Works well but too pricey!

    The Phillips Avent Steam Sterilizer is a good product and does a great job sterlizing. You can either clean the bottles yourself or put them in it's dishwasher safe basket to clean them in the dishwasher. Once you're done with that, you put those in this Sterilizer and just turn the On Button. It has automatic shut-off so you don't have to be watching it. It hold about 6 bottles and sterlizes them really well in under 1o minutes. I just think that there are cheaper options out there which do the job just as well and keeping that in mind, I find this to be a bit expensive. But if price is no bar, I would certainly recommend this.

  • Title: Not just for baby bottles!

    I wanted the Philips AVENT 4-in-1 to use for respiratory items and I am very glad I got it. I did call customer service before using it the first time to see what I could and could not use in it. Yes, it might seem a bit expensive to use the AVENT just for that, but for me the convenience is well worth it and I save money by not having to buy nebulizer tubing and attachments on a regular basis as I did before. I actually have found other things around the house to sterilize as well. I did not have any problems setting it up and it takes up a small space on the counter. I love it! The User's Manual seems to be printed on recycled paper which makes it very soft and easily torn

  • Title: This is an easy, efficient, and versitile sterilizer you should consider adding to your wish list ...

    I wouldn't say that this sterilizer takes up "minimal" space in your kitchen, but much needed space. Rather than store one piece elsewhere in the kitchen, I'd recommend storing the whole thing either on the counter or in a cupboard until needed. Most likely you'll be using it every day so I'd just leave in on top of the counter. It does stack and is approximately 10 1/2" tall, 11" wide, and 5 1/2" deep at their widest measurements. For a frequently used item it is not an inconvenient size and is relatively attractive. Before you sterilize any materials it is best that you run it through one complete cycle. There are several important safeguards outlined in the directions that you should pay attention to and read before using the sterilizer. For example Yes

  • Title: Works well enough ...

    This is a surprisingly useful product. The sterilizer works very quickly, around 6-10 minutes for a full load. We initially did not think a sterilizer was necessary given the microwave products available and also stovetop boiling. However, given its speed, it works much better than microwave or stovetop boiling. The shape of the sterilizer also fits well in the kitchen without causing too much clutter. We currently rinse the bottles and sterilize them without washing with detergent every time. The entire process takes much less time than having to wash by hand. Provides a convenient basket for pre-cleaning in the dishwasher - nice. A few minor downsides: the scale buildup on the bottom tank fairly quickly due to the hardness of our water Strange thing about it is you have to wait 10 minutes for it to cool down before you can use it again. That's kind of annoying if you were planning to have a sterilizing session Overall a very useful product for bottles that can be sterilized (Playtex bottles and drop-ins and other soft plastic may melt)."

  • Title: a terrific, flexible system!

    The Phillips 4 in 1 sterilizer is a very well thought out device which not only provides a clean, safe, efficient way to sterilize bottles, it is adjustable and has removable components to allow you to clean and sterilize a pretty wide variety of items (just about anything which can tolerate steam cleaning). Love the product, love the brand! With kid #1 we steriilzed bottles by boiling them... and carefully removing them with tongs; and the pacifiers too (kind of giggling as I think of dad crawling around in the aisle on an airplane to Disney looking under seats for that lost pacifier!). they get dropped all kinds of places I like to keep things natural This little device does take up some counter space The Phillips steam sterilizer is efficient; takes only 6 minutes and does not leave you with pots The removable basket can be thrown in the dishwasher I have not had this long enough to say if it will last a year or 2 or 10 In sum

  • Title: Philips AVENT 3-in-1 Electric Steam Sterilizer

    The Philips AVENT Electric Steam Sterilizer works as described. It's spacious enough to hold several bottles and other stuff that we've tried - like our own multi-groved Sigg Water Bottle caps. Note: this 3-in-1 offers fewer features than the 4-in-1 model, which includes an better electronic display and dishwasher basket. Unfortunately, unless you have two of these, if you have many things to sterilize, there is a short waiting period between usage.

  • Title: Be Careful with what you put in it!

    Length:: 3:41 Mins Washing **** This sterilizer will warp sippy cups***** ***** We have difficulty/ it is impossible to use with large bottles***** The first attribute is not the fault of Philips The second point doesn't make much sense Dr. Brown's BPA Free Polypropylene Bottle are too big to be used in this sterilizer. This is a bit of a head-scratcher as to why they made a device that is about 1/2"" too short to accommodate a very common type of bottle. A few other notes - Very - Takes up a lot of counter space - more than a standard coffee maker. - Be careful with placement - The directions are poor Final verdict - This is a great product for parents with children less than 6 months

  • Title: Between the dishwasher, the microwave, and this - I choose the dishwasher

    Now that I'm a few months in to being a first-time father, I've had a chance to try a lot of different new-parent products, and never ceased to be amazed at the variety (and expense) of single-purpose gadgets that every parent "must have." We bought a variety of bottles for our munchkin, but wound up using the Evenflo glass bottles pretty exclusively. We rinse them immediately after each feed At first Avent microwave sterilizer after each run through the dishwasher. For a few weeks. Then we started wondering what all this additional sterilization was accomplishing? The bottles are exposed to high temperature steam in the dishwasher - and therefore come out just as sterile as they do from the microwave sterilizer. Presumably With dry sterilized bottles The microwave sterilizer For those circumstances where neither dishwasher nor microwave is available plastic bottles In the long run

  • Title: Effectively Delivers Peace of Mind ...

    Foremost, like most reviewers here, I was astonished at the counter-space consumed by the Avent Sterilizer. No matter how large your kitchen, counter-space always remains at a premium. Does one put her/his juicer into hibernation? (Not if one wants to stay energized and healthy!) Does one's coffee-maker disappear into the cupboard? (Not if one cares to stay awake through morning presentations!) One's grill? (One needs to "knock-out the fat"! Unlikely, indeed!) So, with this product comes a bit of compromise (true), but most parents are prepared for "compromise" ... What remains most important One can cut-corners on a number of baby products (if one needs to); nonetheless Buy it for your baby

  • Title: 3-in-1 Steam Sterilizer does an efficient job

    Out of the box the various Philips Sterilizer parts were of good quality, the plastic felt durable and strong. On the flap of the cardboard container, there is a convenient and easy to understand step-by-step series of pictures that illustrate(without words) how to use this item. The manual is well written with clear instructions and comes in 3 languages(English,French,Spanish). The unit is quick and easy to assemble and there is only a light indicator and an on/off button. The sterilizing process is a snap. There are two layers. The bottom portion is for tall items such as milk bottles and cups. The upper portion is for smaller items such as pacifiers. After filling the water to an appropriate level(check manual) The machine does an efficient job of sterilizing the items that are placed inside of it. Aside from the obvious baby items

  • Title: Inconvenient Convenience

    Like many dedicated appliances, you really have to determine how much inconvenience you are willing to put up with to have some convenience. Meaning, this "Philips AVENT 4-in-1 Electric Steam Sterilizer" does a good job, but it only does one job and it takes up a lot of space doing it. To be sure But it takes up a lot of space. And a valuable power outlet in my kitchen that is already overloaded. And ultimately all it does is replace a pot of boiling water that sterilizes just as well and can be put away afterward. I do a lot of canning

  • Title: Good at what it does

    First, I must say that I'm not personally convinced that babies need everything to be super sanitary; on the contrary I am one of those people that believe a baby that never experiences germs will grow up with a weak immune system. That said, I assumed this would take the place of a dishwasher, getting the bottles clean in 6 minutes, as claimed on the box. But the instructions recommend a full washing by hand or in a dishwasher first. Of course you need to rinse everything well first, but a full washing... The 6 minute claim is sort of misleading Back to the dishwasher thing. The one basket is dishwasher safe Thankfully For all this minor nitpicking It looks like the only difference between this product and other models in the line (besides size) is the ""ready"" indicator light that comes on after the product has cycled through. I thought about other uses for this product. Canning? Could probably work well for sterilization of small jars and lids. Home brewing? Not very good because a regular long neck will not fit vertically. It's a good product if you want to sterilize baby bottles or even if you have other sterilization needs."

    This is an awesome product.

The dishwasher basket is also very handy. This is super easy to use and makes life so much easier - especially if your baby is bottle-fed. I highly recommend it."

  • Title: Works great! Nice design

    This re-designed Philips Avent sterilizer is very compact and sleek. I have been using it since my son is born and so far, everything works great. It has lots of room and holds all types of bottles. I wish it comes with a small 100cc cup so I can fill up the reservoir without measuring anything. Also, another nice improvement would be detachable cable, so I can clean the reservoir without unplugging the cable and carry the whole thing. Otherwise, this is the nicest looking sterilizer I have ever seen, and I am happy with the purchase!

  • Title: Better than the microwave....

    The Philips steam sterilizer is great. Since it is electric it is better and more accurate than your microwave. With the microwave you have to know the wattage and how much water to place. I have used bags and containers to steam but somehow I end up messing up a bottle or too. The sterilizer not only fits Avent series bottles but other brands as well. You can fit a few other items inside as well. This is a worry free steamer sterilizer that won't ruin your baby bottles or other baby essentials.

    When you have a newborn in the house any little thing that can make your life a little easier is a blessing and nothing could be easier then sterilizing my little one's bottles than this sterilizer. It's simple dimple, it really is. I run everything in my house through the dishwasher, so I know by daughter's bottles are clean before I use the sterilizer, but you don't have to, you can just clean them, if you want.

  • Title: Excellent product!

    I have been using the 4 in 1 sterilizer for over 10 weeks now. It is very easy and simple to use and I love that it's so fast too. It takes about 10 minutes for a complete cycle. As with any steamer, you have to be careful not to empty it too soon because the bottles (especially glass ones) are VERY hot. I have not used the dishwasher basket yet because I do not run the dishwasher every day. Instead, I use a bottle brush and wash the bottles manually with soap and warm water before sterilizing them. I did notice that the colour of the metal in the reservoir is starting to turn a little yellow, but I read that it can be removed with a 30% solution of white vinegar (I have not tried to do that yet). Another plus is its weight. We had to travel by car when my daughter was 8 weeks and we were staying out of town for a couple of days, so I took the sterilizer with me. I would not have survived that trip without it! It's so light and low maintenance which makes it perfect for traveling. I would highly recommend this product to all mommies!"

  • Title: great item

    This product is easy to use and easy to clean when needed. It is designed to take 6 Avent bottles of all sizes, but I can fit 7 in there. I feel much better about using this method for sterilizing than using a microwave, after reading how even microwave safe plastic can leak chemicals. I always pull it forward on the counter when using After use I place the containment parts out on a towel to air dry I have been using it for 6months now with no problem."

  • Title: Good capacity, Bad Odour a major problem

    As described by many reviewers here, it requires tedious cleanup, and leaves bad odour in objects placed in it, and in my case, ONLY after a single use!! Visually it looks great, and has good design for accommodating large number of items. However, the design and mechanism for filling it up with water for each use, and cleaning it up afterwards leaves much to be desired. Fill up and clean up is cumbersome and tedious. You need to dismount all compartments, and pour water on the metal plate, and clean it up after each use. Even when you do so, I found it leaving bad odour (rust like) in the items placed in it which is difficult to get out. And trust me, your infants wont drink from anything smelling that bad. I didn't even try giving them to my twins. If Philips updates the design to fill up water without dismounting all the components (give us a SLOT to pour water through)

  • Title: Pretty darn good

    This is our first sterilizer. Thought about getting a microwave one, but our microwave is pretty small so we opted for the electric sterilizer. I've used it a couple times already. The instructions are very clear. The first time I used it I made sure to have a full load to sterilize. It didn't take long at all and did a good job. I used it again today and sterilized not just bottles but breast pump attachments as well. This is just a sterilizer so it doesn't dry the items. They are pretty wet after the cycle is done so you still have to dry them. I just put everything on the drying rack like we usually do.

  • Rating

  • Title: Good buy

    I would have given this product 5 stars except for after it cycles and shuts off there is still quite a bit of water in the reservoir you use for steaming. Other than that I love using it, after I wash my bottles I just toss them in and they get nice and clean.

  • Title: Does not fit Dr Brown's 8oz bottles

    Perhaps this is an unfair review beause I cannot speak to whether the product actually works, but it would have been nice if they warned you before purchasing about height limits on the bottles. We use a very common bottle, the Dr. Brown's 8oz (non-wideneck). They don't fit so we have to return the unit. It is just annoying to purchase a product and then find out that you can't use it. I would have really liked it if they had put in bold letters somewhere that bottles must be shorter than "x" to fit (if they did, I didn't see it). Just be careful if you buy this to make sure your bottle will fit. Lowering this to 1 star because I reread the page on this and they explicitly say that it works with all bottles

  • Title: Too much hassle for what it does - boiling water method is much simpler and compact!

    I thought I had to have this for the registry, but changed my mind after using it a few times. While this seems to be one of the better sterilizers on the market, I ended up returning this for the following reasons: - Items do not dry well in this - It is quite big and can only be kept on a big kitchen counter. Storing it off the counter makes it unlikely that you would use it at all. - Boiling water seems easier - Prewashing is necessary in the dishwasher or sink of all items before they go in the sterilizer - the prewashing necessary for all items before sterilizing make this only a marginally useful appliance. Unless you have too much counter space in your kitchen

  • Title: It collects rust even if i am draining the water after each use.

    The steamer Philips AVENT 3-in-1 Electric Steam Sterilizer does its job well. It sterilizes all the components of the pump I am really dissapointed that Philips would create a device that collects rust so easy. I am cleaning the steamer after each use making sure that i drain all the watter and i allways keep the water at the correct level and it still collecting rust. I would not recommend it to others for this reason. UPDATE We used the sterilizer for almost a month Their explanation was that the water that i was using was to hard and minerals were deposited on the bottom. With the new sterilizer i decided to use distilled water. Unfortunately the same thing has happened. It collected rust although i am drying the plate after each use and am using distilled water. For this reason i am still giving this product 1 star."

    Does its job, compact and very spacious too . The only issue i have with it is after it sterilizes there are still drops of water in the bottle and the pacifier that needs to be dried out .

Other than that i use it on a regular basis everyday and find it a necessary product!

  • Title: Excellent non-microwave Electric Sterlizer

    We got this product after we felt slightly uneasy about putting all of our bottles and plastic parts into the microwave to sterilize. Another reason we needed this over your standard microwave sterilizer is space! This sterilizer takes up much less counter space than your normal round microwave sterilizer, and uses more veritcal space which is definitely a plus for any kitchen. The sterlizing process is quick, only 15 minutes, and its easy to use and convenient. It also comes apart very easily for cleaning, and can be used in a few different configurations, depending on the amount of items you plan to sterilize. It also has the advantage that it doesnt need to be moved after the sterilizing is complete (unlike the microwave ones) and also it uses up the water and does not need to be emptied after a sterilizing cycle like the microwave ones.

  • Title: Not bad not great

    Easy and intuitive to use. Does a fast and good job getting items sterile. The water reservoir builds up calcium very fast especially if you have hard water. Not sure how long it would have worked. Biggest issue was the lack of any drying function. Air dry doesn't seem like it's the best or fastest solution. Also concerned that the extended dampness would lead to mold or mildew. Never happened but didn't want to take a chance. It's still a good product otherwise.

    This sterilizer is easy to use and serves it purpose, but rust forms at the bottom. In the guide, it says that you can remove the rust by soaking it in a vinegar solution. I tried this and soaked it overnight, but the rust was impossible to remove. Its also pretty big and bulky. I didn't have a problem with that because its big size means it can hold a lot of bottles.

  • Title: bad quality

    I'm a mother of newborn twins and used this sterilizer for only one month. I use Dr. Brown's 4 oz and 8 oz bottles and would sterilize bottles/accessories 3-4 times a day. After a few weeks, the heat tray started to rust and the bottle nipples were turning brown. I followed the directions exactly by drying each part of the sterilizer (including the heat tray) after each use, but the rust would always return after the next use. There was also a white, watery film at the bottom of the heat tray after each use. I'm assuming it's the dye "melting off" from the accessories rack or inside the container. While the accessories tray at the top is nice for the smaller parts The bottles and accessories never air dried inside the sterilizer. Everything would remain wet and I had to manually dry each bottle and accessory or put it on a drying rack. Finally

  • Title: So far, so good

    Despite a few bad reviews, we ordered this steamer because others in the same price range had equally bad reviews. We already own other items from the Avent line (bottles, breast pump, etc), so we gave it a shot. Ultimately ~Other reviews have had issues with the power button; claiming it stops working. It should be noted (and is in the user manual) that the machine has a safety feature which keeps it from running another cycle for 10 minutes after running a set of steam through. This is to keep the extremely hot metal plate from melting the plastic housing. While the switch feels flimsy ~Other reviews have also mentioned the corrosion on the heating plate ~ Another minor annoyance is the water tray. Any excess water that condenses while steaming runs down to the collection plate. The problem it that it's a level surface and just pools up. If I had to redesign it My only other issue is that we bought a drying rack with it. If you hand wash your items and through them on a rack Bottom line

The only thing I would say is that you need to make sure you drain any water left in the water container after using it or it will create some rust with time. The first one we had stopped working one day but we sent it back and got a new one very quickly. Overall I like it!"

    I thought that this sterilizer will be a really good one. As recommended I sterilized it without any bottles for the first time and noticed the chemical smell that smeared the compartments. Then I washed everything (except the base) with mild soapy water and sterilzed again, but the smell was still there. Then I tried to sterilize some baby bottles. To my surprise, even the bottles smelled like a toxic chemical after sterilizing. I am returing this product right away. I don't want to expose the new one to unknown chemical residues.

    This was a okay system, we used it for a week or two but noticed right away a burning smell after each clean. If you do not remove the items right away then this smell would get into the bottles.

Had the product not had this burning issue then we would have kept the item and I would have given it 4 or 5 stars. It is designed well (apart from burning smell issue). You can fit a lot of items in there, even non philips branded stuff.

    I wouldn't say that this sterilizer takes up "minimal" space in your kitchen, but much needed space. Rather than store one piece elsewhere in the kitchen, I'd recommend storing the whole thing either on the counter or in a cupboard until needed. Most likely you'll be using it every day so I'd just leave in on top of the counter. It does stack and is approximately 10 1/2" tall, 11" wide, and 5 1/2" deep at their widest measurements. For a frequently used item it is not an inconvenient size and is relatively attractive.

  • Title: great

    This sterilizer is easy to use, however you have to clean it frequently to prevent build up on the base plate. I use it daily, and its not hard to clean, and I would assume with all sterilizers you would have to do the same.

  • Title: The device is 110v, but not mentioned in the technical description on Amazon

    The device is 110v, when no such detail is mentioned in the item description on Amazon!!! It needs to be mentioned especially for the International Buyers where the Electrical standards are different (220v). Now my sterilizer is useless!

  • Title: Easy to use

    This sterilizer is very easy to use and it works very fast which is very convenient. It has plenty of room for several feeding bottles or other items. The only downside is that it leaves items very wet.

  • Title: You can't imagine the time / effort it saves you!

    If anyone told you that having a baby is wonderful, they are absolutely right. But, what they might have failed to mention is the amount of work required to keep that baby happy! Babies' feeding bottles etc. have to be sterilized to avoid getting them sick. If the mother is also pumping, then there are that many pieces that need to be sterilized. This unit saves tremendous effort / energy as you go from dishwasher to sterilizing unit without having to boil water first etc. I know, It's a bit pricey for in essence a glorified humidifier but, this is made to sterilize. The steam is quick, and entire process in ~10mins to complete with auto shut-off. This 4-in-1 model comes with dishwasher attachment. We haven't used the other 3-in-1 (less price) unit so, can't comment about that but, this unit is a great time saver!

  • Title: Broke on 3rd use/ 2nd day

    When we received the product we unwrapped and used the product twice and then it refused to work any further. Very disappointed and now have the product which was delivered from US to Australia and not only will not work but have wasted the money. I would prefer to have bought from a shop for this experience and paid the premium!!

    4-5 minutes to sterilize the baby stuff. Great for the mom on the go or the lazy dad that doesnt like to wash things.

  • Title: Good but not perfect

    It does it's job well, sterilizes the bottles and does it quickly. There is enough room in there to add things like pacifiers, etc., along with the bottles. The only gripe is the sclaing on the heating element. I first thought it was rust but whatever it is you don't want that going into the bottles - in my mind it defeats the purpose of sterilizing. I called support and they suggested using 1ml White Vinegar with 2 ml Distilled water and leave it on the heating element (while it's off) for several hours. That did help, night & day difference. Just make sure to wash the heating element again to get the vinegar off before using it.

  • Title: 4-in-1

    the 4-in-1 is best solution to sterilize bottles and many other baby items but it catches rust quickly even with distilled water.

  • Title: Good product

    This works well. I have an older dishwasher and was unsure about detergent residue etc. So, I bought this sterilizer to be certain the bottles are clean. This does an nice job! I hand wash first and then place my bottles, pump accessories, pacifiers, etc. inside. I have an Avent pump and an Evenflo hand pump, both fit, so I imagine this sterilizer will accommodate all pump brands. Yes, it does develop scale and rust. BUT ALL products that heat water without regular cleaning would do that. (Have you ever descaled your coffee maker? If not, that's some nasty stuff you're drinking). So, as long as you clean it according to the instructions, you should not have any of those problems.

  • Title: quality of water makes ALL the difference!

    We purchased this sterilizer after seeing the benefits of sterilizing baby's toys, bottles, veggies using the "baby bullet" sterilizer that came with the baby bullet system. Clearly their sterilizer/steamer was meant for veggies as it doesn't have the capacity or stamina for continuous use. Almost every time I buy something from amazon, I read a few good reviews, but then I'll read as many bad reviews as I can. Many of the bad reviews have to do with the unit malfunctioning or developing a bad smell after some time. We purchased it anyway due to the affordability, but we were always wary of any possible smell. I am pleased to report that after a year of use, we still have the original and It's still in use now! I just put a round of sippy cups through it not 10 minutes ago! I usually check it for a smell, but after a year, we only had that issue once, then we learned a valuable lesson: even the filtered water in the refrigerator is better than distilled or even nursery water! Let me explain why: distilled and nursery water, unless it specifically states otherwise, usually has something added to it to either add taste or to make sure it stays sterile. We have a drinking water dispenser in our fridge that uses a PUR 3 stage filter. We quickly discovered that if we use this water or nursery water with no taste added, the sterilizer stayed odor-free. We've been extremely pleased with it's performance and has continued to work just as it did when it first came! Thanks to our dilligence and water savvy, we are pleased with the product! My only reason for a 4 star review is that I wish the upper basket had more places to fit more items like sippy straws, or earlier, we used Playtex bottles that had 5 parts. More room or extra surfaces would make it easier to ensure a good sterilization for all parts of these bottles or cups.

  • Title: Good Product but has no indication anywhere with regards to the voltage

    Its partly my fault for not checking below the product the electrical configuration it required. This product works only on 110v which means only works in the US. We took it outside the US on first use and it went bust. Doesn't work any more. Well they could have mentioned in the technical specification page about its electrical configuration and i would have just not bought it. $50 burned :-("

  • Title: Glad it's so fast

    In 8 min the bottles are sterilized. Easy to use, occupies small space, can store clean bottles without them getting in the way. At the beginning it had an odor, I washed the baskets really well and also the metal plate. The smell went away after a while. I figured it was the heating plate. I tested it with clean water by tasting some of the water build up. It did not taste metallic. At first I was afraid my baby would be drinking chemicals. But realized it was the plate heating up. It stopped smelling after 6 sterilizations.

  • Title: So-so

    I bought this and returned it a week later. There was nothing wrong with the product, it just didn't do what I wanted it to. After each sterilization, since it uses steam, you get these tiiiiny water droplets all over each bottle and nipple. For some reason, it takes 10X longer to dry than if you had just washed them by hand and left them on the counter. I think it's because there's SO much water residue left on the bottles. I don't have enough bottles and nipples to go around so I can't afford to wait an entire day for everything to dry. Thus, I returned it and got a WABI. (http://www.amazon.com/Electric-Baby-Bottle-Steam-Sterilizer/dp/B00AKIQPEW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1370058795&sr=8-1&keywords=wabi ) It is infinitely more expensive, but worth the price. It is the only sterilizer out there that also has a drying function. So after it sterilizes, it will start a 45 minute drying cycle. After it's done, all your bottles are compeltely dry without water spots! Very handy.

  • Title: Broke down twice!

    The first time it broke, Amazon was quick with its response and replaced it immediately. They even refunded the postage but the second after working fine for few weeks broke again. I am not enthusiastic about using this sterilizer again. I love Avent but this gadget is just disappointing and I have to mention.... Amazon has an excellent customer service.

  • Title: Looks like it will work

    Baby is due 11/22, so we have chosen the AVENT product line for feeding. Everything appears to be exactly what we wanted. The other reviews were helpful. I will have to let you know around December or January how it all works out.

  • Title: more space, but not too much time

    I like it but I feel that take less time in sterilizer all, most of the time take 5 or 8 minutes. when in the other one takes 10 to 15 minutes. I don't know if this is the correct time or what.

  • Title: Stopped working after 7 months

    It was working fine for almost 7 months, then all of a sudden, it stopped. Press the button, it would turn on for 10-20 seconds then turn itself off, making no steam. It can still be used for storing bottles, but that's not really the purpose it was designed for. Got a replacement now. Will see how long that last."
